Selected workshop

Combatting Microaggressions

Microaggressions are the brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial, gender, sexual orientation, and religious slights and insults to the target person or group. (Sue, Capodilupo, et al., 2007).

Racism, heterosexism, gender discrimination, ableism, classism, and all other ‘isms’ are constantly in flux as society changes and social identity expression transforms. Direct verbal and physical abuse, use of epithets, and other methods of overt discrimination have lessened as time goes on, and yet the discrimination experienced by marginalized groups is often the most frustrating and difficult to address when performed without awareness and with the best of intentions.
 
In this workshop we will discuss every day, subtle, often invisible forms of oppression—the kinds of oppression that can easily go unnoticed even though they are pervasive, hurtful, and taxing. We will explore how oppressive practices can be enacted subconsciously without negative intent, and how each of us likely engages in these microaggressions on a regular basis. This workshop will teach participants how to recognize the different forms of microaggressions in oneself and in others, and how to address and combat their presence at MRU and beyond.
